GoPro Hero 5: Rumors Regarding the Release Date, Prices Surface, And More

The GoPro Hero was launched a long time ago and ever since then people haven’t been introduced to a newer upgrade.  At present, it’s not surprising to hear people still confused about choosing between the Black and Silver versions of the Hero 4. These variants not only offer a difference in color but also a major difference in special included features. In the end, it all depends on your preference as choosing one of them can be quite difficult.

On one hand, the Black variant captures more frames per second than its Silver counterpart. However, the latter offers a built-in LCD screen which is absent in the former. The GoPro Hero 4 is still quite young and, as a result, the rumors mills have started churning out speculations regarding an upgrade to this version. Presently, people are talking about a successor to this device, known as the GoPro Hero 5. Let us take a look at the latest speculations, rumors and predictions involving this topic.

According to the latest rumors, the GoPro Hero 5 is scheduled to be launched in September this year. Gospel Herald reports that all previous GoPro devices have arrived in October or September. As a result, the outlet is quite convinced that people will witness the next flagship around the same time-frame, this year. The recent reports indicate that the GoPro Hero 5 will have the much anticipated 8K resolution.

Reports indicate that the camera has an advanced processor which provides the resolution at the same frame rate. Further news from Gospel Herald reports that the camera features an A10 chip, which permits it to record 4K videos at 60 frames per second. Certain sources reveal that there are also chances of 1080p at 120fps and 720p at 240fps. The GoPro Hero 4 is priced around the $500 mark and can record 4K videos at 30fps. Meanwhile, the $100 cheaper Silver Hero 4 model can capture videos at two different settings: 720p at 120 fps and 1080p at 240fps.
